you there. i want to point to the columbus dispatch. the headline is -- mailings a nuisance for ohioans. those of any swing states are saying it every day, calling the number of mailings and the ads a nuisance at this point. let us go to mississippi, cecila on our line for democrats. good morning. caller: yes. our state will go more than likely to romney. where the poorest people and the nation, and this man is only for the very rich. i call him a very strong used car salesmen. he will tell you anything you want to hear. and he is going to tear this country up, just like he did those companies, and sought of two parts to china and anyone else. another thing, too, i am not surprised that evangelists are supporting them, because they have been riding a gravy train a long time. they get tax deductions -- they give tax deductions to give people that give money to them. to me it is a big welfare system and they do not want to see it end. and we have a country that is built on the middle class. this man does not care about the middle-class. he could care less. and that to me is wh
: we're going now to tom, from columbus, ohio. we're discussing the resignation of general david petraeus. your thoughts? caller: i have a couple of questions. the first, i have read where the house, eric cantor knew something about this relationships fairly early on. is there any reason this was not used as material for the republicans to win the election? host: you think that it was a legitimate campaign issue, going back to the timeline of events from "usa today"? going back to the time line -- general petraeus spoke to the source on the same day, that is the time line that was laid out. caller: i think it would have been a credible campaign event. it is just curious, with all the mudslinging of a presidential election, that someone did not take ball and run with it, i guess. i am curious as to why someone, even some low-level, did not try to test the waters and push this into the media to find out if there could be a bite in the last week or two before the election. host: thank you for the call, from ohio this morning. the woman who has been in -- implicated with general petr
is right here in columbus, ohio. where they have had a few. i will not say a gaggle of them, but quite a few. and then i heard you earlier on the dollar fight workers, that you and senator brown -- on the delphi workers. you were interviewing the delphi workers. they say they have no pension are not getting any pension. this spin sounds like it is coming from you there a little bit. host: tim ryan? guest: it is a tough situation with the delphi salary folks. we have been working on it along time. my former coach's and family members who were in that group -- i am not here to spend anything, i am here to help them. it was a bankruptcy, a tough deal. but most of those pensions have gone to the pbgc. where they are getting pension money. they may not be getting all of their pension money, but they -- some are getting all. most are betting almost all. we do not have those exact numbers, but we want to find those. they are getting -- that does not diminish the suffering of these families. the economic impact it is having an our community. this is not a political football to score political

romney in columbus, ohio, which we covered on the c-span network. it is all about ohio, ohio, ohio. this is fun -- from the sun. when her post. -- thisate holds its- is from the sunday and her post. swing state holds its sway. caller: if i can get these two gentlemen to take off their name tags for one moment and answer the question. if the republicans had worked with president obama, with the situation we are in now be the same? guest: our argument about the partisanship is that the bottom line is that obama had overwhelming control in the house and senate in the first two years of his presidency. he got some of the things through that he wanted. there were several things i did not work like the stimulus package. there are also many things that he is saying, i will do, that he did not get done when he could do it. i think taking the name ted off -- i think, taking the name tag off, i think this country is split between democrats and republicans. we believe the country is 43% democrat and 40% republican. what you see happening in washington actually reflects the american public. wh
herald." the end of the road, clinton stops here. -- clumps here, romney finishes tonight. the columbus dispatch out of ohio, it's decision time. poll hours, 6:30 a.m., 7:30 p.m. the subhead, the last push. a big choice on the government's role is how they decided to headline the subhead. candidates may be close in the polls but their visions are wide apart. just to give you a sam planing of how the newspapers are playing out. as far as our question of why you decided to vote or maybe not decide to vote, there is a website who writes about the idea of those within florida, she's intrusived about those who are not going to vote tonight. she writes in part this. it's true that everybody should vote. but what you'll never hear from the parties is that democracy is better off without voter who is don't do any homework. the rhetoric you hear is about the absolutely no obligation to vote but there are valid reasons to sit it out and among the, if your ballot will an exercise of random selection. you don't feel comfortable with the choices, you might be in the same boat as craig engle. he's a
it on current tv. host: ron from columbus georgia, independent line. caller: good morning. i do agree with your comment about campaign is over, let's govern. but i am a veteran and i've been a company commander and my point is is this, i cannot call my boss and say i cannot get my company commanders to agree on how to accomplish a commission. i won't be a company commander very long. here's the point, the american people are the boss. there should be a law that's presented to congress that says from mr. president on down to congress, if you cannot solve the country's problems you need to go. it's just that simple. americans are sick and tired of the partisan politics and we just don't see the greatest country in the world moving forward the way it's supposed to be. and it's because you've got these guys playing partisan congress. there should not be a republican or democrat, it should be america's party after you're elected to congress. guest: i agree with the principle but we have the means in place if we use it and that's an election. every two years members of the house of represent ives are
of the economy. host: columbus, indiana, independent scholar. guest: how are things in bartholomew county? caller: they are great. are among social security. i do not live above my means. -- i am awed social security. they would rather reform taxes for people working here from foreign countries. maybe it would help us get our economy back on track again. guest: reform taxes for people here from foreign countries? host: taxing them more, i assume? guest: i think that's a fairly small percentage of the american workforce, foreign nationals. referring to people in the country illegally would be something else. look. we need to take a complete look at the tax code and i think congress will be doing that. how to restructure this in ways to help the economy grow? that is the biggest challenge right now. it's a very competitive world out there. the population is aging and we are not creating enough jobs and investment. what can we do with the 10,000 page tax code to make it easier to hire people come to invest, and grow the economy? two, there are certain things we have to pay for, social security, nati
are on the line wi. i think we lost him. hmael.republican, is caller: how are you? columbus, ohio. i am a republican. what i love in the republicans is they -- when they say people give us free money. [indiscernible] i worked for a company and that's where i loved my republican voice. host: lia is on the line. caller: i worked in the primary. what i think needs to happen is we just need to be able to coalesce around a single candidate during the primaries. we cannot do that this time. the social conservatives and religious conservatives and fiscal conservatives need to be able to come together on a candidate. host: is there someone in particular? caller: i worked for ron paul. what needs to happen is the religious social conservatives need to realize that trying to legislate this does not work, obviously. look at what we have. they have to be willing to live a separated life from the world. when they think it through and realize that limited government is the only real way now to go back to a moral society, we need to stop actually subsidizing things like divorce and all the other thing
